THG Network (April 30, 2017) — Just a few months after a cellphone video, which showcased the living conditions at the St. Kitts-based Her Majesty’s Prison (HMP), went viral, a handful of inmates have released another video.
In addition to showcasing unsanitary living conditions and complaining about the presence of bed bugs, one inmate sent a message to “every young man”, cautioning them from living a life of crime.
He said, “…prison is not the right way to go. We get a lot of knockbout, a lot of ill-treatment. We living like dogs.”
Since receiving the video via THG Network’s WhatsApp News Portal, our reporters have begun making contact with security and government officials to get a clearer understanding of life inside HMP, including how inmates are still able to access mobile phones.
